Per Susan FD Thomas m 30 Jan 2009:
.....I know the elders were associated with the Frinks and Gause's in BC, last entry I have for Capt Joseph Long was he was protecting the ammunition factory Frink/Gause had set up at Calabash, it got blowed by the Tories, there isn't another mention of our Capt Joseph Long after that, then he is in Pireway 1800, beside Thomas Frink, then Reuben sells the land in that grant in question and he disappears............the cow thing too, MAYBE our Long elder be Macajer or Capt Joseph married a Frink gal....maybe they were prior associates up north, but there is a STRONGER connection to Thomas Frink then any other family there at the timeframe, think of it, you got a deed with a Simmons witnessing or like always early Frinks, later Frink/Faulk, then the Gore's/Simmons show up witnessing and such....another thing is our Capt Joseph served with the HC reserves and Peter Horry and Marion, not the Wilmington units or NC, although that state line moved, so Pireway was SC one time, but most who lived there served out of Wilmington, the same though was to Jonathan Gore II that died Montrose RW, he was under the SC unit....so this may not make a difference, but may......all I got in stone.... it's enough to continue the search for the Frink/Long connection to me....
